[NEHGR 142:253-4] WB's will dated 12 June 1661, mentions sons Steven, William and Thomas, and mentions three daughters who were the wives of John Reanalds, Benjamin Crane, and John Bayley. To his son William, he left all the tooles belonging to the trade of a smith and cutler. WB was listed as an apprentice to William Nutt of Grimesthorpe, near Sheffield, was given his freedom in 1627, and was admitted as a member of the Sheffield Cutlers Company. This placed him as a member of that company at the same time as Thomas Bingham, husband of Anna. Sheffield records mentions children Sara, Maria, William, Lidia, and Stephen. His wife's burial is also recorded. Conclusive proof is that WB's mark for the Sheffield Cutlers Company in 1631 is identical to that on his will. He married 2nd Anna (Fenton) Bingham in 1659 at Saybrook (she died at Norwich May 1670)
[Hale-House 452-455] Moved to Norwich with his second wife and family in 1660. He was made a freeman October 1663 at the wame time as Simon Huntington and other Norwich men. His estate was inventoried 7 June 1664 by Thomas Leffingwell and John Birchard and amounted to 102-00-00. In addition to the house and homelot and five other parcels of land, the usual farm animals and implements, household stuff, and a gun and sword, it lists cutlers tools and ivory.
